Have you heard about 'Crying Cody', the three-year-old girl whose mother posted a video of her sobbing over Canadian pop star Justin Bieber on YouTube? The video took off like wildfire - nearly two million people have watched Cody shed many a tear over Justin in less than a month - and even folks who don’t really know (or care) about Justin Bieber (like me!) have got to admit that Cody is pretty freakin’ adorable.
It was Jimmy Kimmel, of all people, who made Cody’s wish come true. The talk-show host flew her entire family - her parents and two older sisters, Sierra, 8, and Cheyenne, 13 - to L.A. last week for a taping of his show. Little did the girls know that they were really there to meet Justin, who was in the area to celebrate his 16th birthday.
What? I’m not crying, I’ve got something in my eye. Oh, who am I kidding? I love stories like this, and I think it’s really cool that Justin agreed to meet his youngest, most devoted fan. According to People magazine, he spent about an hour hanging out with the family after Jimmy's cameras stopped rolling, and treated them to a day at Disneyland before they headed home.
Stuff like this makes the world go ‘round. Seriously.
